Cultural differences in family size, Canada 1941: CS98-1941M-6E-PDF

"This bulletin continues the investigation of human fertility in Canada, and is supplementary to Bulletin F-1 "Trends in Canadian Family Size." Both bulletins are based upon statistics collected at the Decennial Census of 1941, when the following questions were asked of ail women who, as at the date of the Census, either were or had been married: (a) age at first marriage; (b) number of children born alive to this mother; (c) number of these children living at the date of the Census. ... The data regarding the number of their children born alive have been correlated with the data on birthplace, religiion, mother tongue, years of schooling and place of residence, aslo collected at the Census, in order to ascertain as nearly as possilbe the bearing of these respective factors upon human fertility. ... Other bulletins deaîing with fertility will be issued as the study of this vital subject proceeds, and will ultimately be consolidated into a Census monograph on this subject"--Pref., p. [2]
